Description:
Flat base; cylindrical neck with everted lip; two vertical loop handles on body. Painted. With a face on neck.

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a globular body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck with ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. There is a band of painted decoration on the shoulder in red, white, and black representing a double sided head of an animal. The face is also painted red, black, and white. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "308."
